The central Anatolian region of Sivas, is inhabitated by Turkish and Kurdish people..Sivas was an important weaving centre in the 19thC where Turkish and Armenian weavers produced adaptations of persian and ottoman designs in various workshops and cottage industry centred in surrounding villages. Colours of Sivas rugs are easily distinguishable with a mixture of pale and vibrant yellows and oranges highlighted with cooler tones.The wool is lustrous and finely spun.Ottoman and Persian design carpets of this style are no longer being woven in this region and therefore have become collectable on today's markets .

What People Say - 

 

Fabulous Collection

One of the most fascinating,entertaining and educational carpet experiences I've ever had.Ruth has a fabulous collection of rugs and kilims and it's clear that she loves them all. She knows the story behind each one and enthusiastically shares the background about the weaver and the meaning of the work.

Ruth is very welcoming and there was never any pressure to buy.

I did take home a couple of lovely pieces and I will definitely return.  I highly recommend her shop !
